Tried Grandads pellet pusher today . it is adjustable for depth . nope i tried in every way i could . no real difference . ??? HOLLY
Ok test did no as hoped . good groups out to 45 yards but after that opened up . phil is sending me a shorter one , as i think the pellets were being seated to deeply . will let you know ??? HOLLY
As usual bazza i will test it to destruction . gotta do this properly . so barrel cleaned and dried . 10 shots to lead barrel . over the chrono to test if it increases or decreases power . then to accuracy testing . the rifle will do half an inch at 55 yards as long as conditions and pellets allow . so will see how it goes ??? HOLLY
OK pellet pusher arrived but with no instructions . hmmm funny looking thing . little round bit of plastic with a hole in the middle . looks a bit like a very small pea shooter . right ok . well after asking how it fitted or was used . i found it fitted into the stabiliser carrier . not external as i thought . fitted easily . will test it this wednesday ??? HOLLY
A friend sent me an email regarding pellet testing.
A colleague of his, a bench rest shooter, took the time to weigh a tin of pellets then shoot at a card to see the difference, the distance wasn't stated but I think they compete over 50 yards.
He had 4 batches, 8.6, 8.5, 8.4 and 8.3 weights then shot a group. The 8.5 and 8.6 were awful whereas the other 2 were spot on. Obviously it depends on the weather at the time the pellets were fired but could make an interesting article for one of the magazines.
